A fairy tale in which a wizard tries to gain power over the heavens in order to obtain possession of a beautiful devathai (fairy). He gives Mohana (Mohana) the appearance of her cousin Queen Chandrika (Varalakshmi), substitutes his creature on the throne and drowns the Queen in a river. However, the Queen is saved by a ‘rishi’. While the King (Radha) remains blissfully unaware of the switch, Mohana, the false Queen, bears a nasty son, Jegaveeran (Nambiar), while the real Queen bears the fine son Veerapradapan (Ganesan). When the latter learns of the family history, he journeys across the seas to fetch a magical fruit that will restore everyone to their rightful position. The wizard’s plans also include disposing of the King, but Veerapradapan arrives in time, together with his mother, to eliminate the evil wizard along with the nasty Jegaveeran, obtaining his reward: Manjula (Savithri), the daughter of the Chief Minister of the realm.
